ARTEMIS

A CELLULAR GEOLOCATION SYSTEM 

Artemis has been designed to accurately locate mobile telephones in the challenging airborne SAR environment. The system is designed to maximize the ability to detect a phone at extended ranges and to provide unique capabilities whilst minimising crew workload.

Artemis offers a solution giving fast and accurate location, where previously the only option was "looking out of the window".

 

Artemis uses a Software Defined Radio and cellular protocol stacks designed and developed by Smith Myers and optimized for the SAR role.

 

SEARCH & RESCUE

Artemis can be used to locate the phone of a person in distress. It can operate in local Network coverage, or where there is poor or no coverage at all.

DISASTER RELIEF

Artemis can locate any powered mobiles in a disaster area. Options include: Sending texts to everyone in the area, receiving messages & calls from those in need of assistance.

BORDER SECURITY

Detection and location of phones in offshore boats (people smuggling). Generating alerts from phones in restricted areas, border intrusions etc.

FEATURES

  • 30km or more range

  • Low profile antennas (2 off)

  • Location without DF equipment.

  • Send and Receive Texts/ Calls

  • Easily integrated into existing avionics

  • Role fit option

  • 28V DC fully protected mil spec PSU

  • Radio Software Defined and Upgradeable

  • Web browser user interface.

  • Arinc 600 case, 7 and 3 MCU  options

  • Flight tested and qualified DO160/MilStd810

  • UAS payload version.

 
 

Audio and Text communication is also possible. Flight tests have successfully located and communicated with test mobiles at ranges in excess of 30km.

Embedded mapping with simple clear D.I. display gives the operator a clear indication of target location.

Location information can be used to drive EO/IR sensor (external camera).

Over 30 years of cellular engineering design experience give Smith Myers a unique advantage in producing a system that offers accuracy, reliability and ease of use to an industry that demands the very best that technology can offer. 

 

Smith Myers’ auto triangulation algorithm achieves impressive accuracy compared to the inherent resolution offered by the protocol itself.
